Rare amoeba found in 1 water system in Louisiana

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 00:37 Published in National News

   BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The federal  say a rare amoeba that caused the August death of a child in south Louisiana has been found in five locations in a north Louisiana water system.

   The state Department of Health and Hospitals said Tuesday the CDC confirmed the presence of the Naegleria fowleri amoeba in five places in DeSoto Parish Waterworks District No. 1, which is one of 14 water systems in the parish.

   State health officials say there are no known current cases of illness related to the discovery in DeSoto or elsewhere in Louisiana.

   The water system said it will begin a free chlorine burn in the system Wednesday to last for 60 days.

   DHH began testing the DeSoto system as a precaution after St. Bernard Parish's water system tested positive. DeSoto was the site of one of two 2011 amoeba-related deaths in Louisiana.

Missouri Honor Flight home after seeing Monuments in DC

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 00:20 Published in Local News

   Another group of Missouri veterans are back home after a successful day trip to visit Washington, DC.  Tuesday's "Honor Flight" carried 25 veterans of World War II and the Korean War.  

   Those organizing the flights had again been concerned that the government shutdown might keep the vets from visiting the federal memorials, but again they were granted access.  Missouri Senators Claire McCaskill  and Roy Blunt welcomed the veterans in DC, along with Congresswoman Ann Wagner.   

   All federal monuments in Washington, DC are closed to the general public because of the federal shutdown, but the National Parks Service has stipulated that the vets will be allowed to visit the memorials despite the shutdown.

Injured dog found at Humane Society in St. Louis

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 00:13 Published in Local News

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Humane Society of Missouri is seeking information about a severely injured dog left outside its St. Louis headquarters this past weekend.

   The female Dalmatian mix was abandoned early Saturday outside the organization's Macklind Avenue offices. The dog's right paw had been chewed off and skin and tissue licked off its rear left paw, exposing bone. Its rear legs were infected with gangrene. The injuries were severe enough that the dog was euthanized.

   The society is offering a $1,000 reward for information about the injured animal. It operates an animal cruelty hotline at (314) 647-4400.
